Katz’s Deli: Eating Pastrami and Corned Beef Meat Sandwiches in New York City Food Video Transcript:
Alright, so we are going out for a bit of an unusual breakfast this morning. We are here in the lower east side to have breakfast at Katz’s deli. Now they specialize in corned beef and pastrami sandwiches and I am starving. So let’s go in there and order some food.
So here is the food we ordered. We ended up getting one corned beef sandwich, one pastrami sandwich and they both came with a whole bunch of pickles. Check it out. Look at those pickles. Wow. This looks fantastic.
Katz’s deli has been around since 1888. It is a true institution. And what makes their meat so special is the curing process. Apparently, it takes over 30 days.
Alright, so you’re starting with pastrami. Just show us like how much meat is in there. Like that is ridiculous. You will not find a sandwich that thick with meat. Yep, so it is served on rye bread with lots of mustard. And I love pastrami sandwiches so I have high expectations.
Wow. That is so good. The meat is so juicy. It just falls apart the minute you bite in to it. And it is so tender, so flavorful. And it is just perfectly paired with the mustard. That combination is fantastic. One more bite.
Mmmm. Check it out.
Alright, and so I have the other sandwich. The corn beef sandwich. Look at that. Oh, wow. The behemoth.
I’m going to try to eat it without having too much of it falling off.
Struggling there? A little messy.
That was way too big of a bite. But oh my. That meat is as tender as it gets. And I like that they keep a little bit of the fat on it. It is really juicy and it has got a bit of a greasy feel as you are chewing it. So so good.
And let’s not forget the pickles. Yeah, for this type of sandwich you can not have it without pickles. Like it is also the perfect pairing. You’ve got to have your mustard and you’ve got to have your pickles.
So out of the two sandwiches which one do you like the most? My favorite is definitely the pastrami. This one that I’m holding here. I just find that the meat is a lot more tender. It is just a lot easier to eat.
Um, and the flavor. Yeah, I don’t know what it is but this one is pretty special. So if you come to Katz’s I highly highly recommend the pastrami sandwich. It’s great.
So again there is a Montreal New York connection. While in Montreal you can go to a place called Schwartz’s which specializes in Canadian smoked meat sandwiches. Which is similar to the pastrami one. There is a bit of a difference. It is hard to say which one I like better. I love them both to be honest and if you can try them both. If you are in Montreal and in New York I highly recommend you do that.
Alright, so the price. How much did these sandwiches cost? Well, they are not cheap because this place is really famous. They each come in at just under $20. But at the same time they are quite filling. Like I’m still struggling to finish my first piece. Like this is going to be more of a brunch than a breakfast. Yeah. Yeah, so bring your appetite when you come here and yeah bring your wallet as well.
